Re: [webalizer] daily reports
- The more I ponder about it, the more sense it seams to make to me to go the
database way - a couple of php or perl cgi's can't be that difficult to
retrieve exactly the data you want and generate the graphs dynamically.
Did you try to google for something? I think someone must have allready
built that kind of frontend for webalizer/mysql.
I really don't need that kind of detailed stats, but if nothing can be
found it sounds like a fun thing to do with a good idea of whats wanted.
Alejandro, why did you switch from analog?
I was thinking of switching to to it :)
